Less is more especially in beauty. Angel, a Youtuber and model, has her beauty technique down to essentials to survive the weather in Lagos. Confidently coming into her own as a creative, Angel prides herself in getting that soft skin-like makeup in 10 minutes.

In her episode of “My Beauty Hack”, Angel discusses how she her career as a content creator and shows us just how smooth she is when it comes to getting her makeup right in record time.

Her first experience with makeup came from her sister, fashion model Nneoma Anosike. Trying out techniques her sister learnt from the makeup artists she worked with was a solid foundation. Since then, Angel’s relationship with makeup has grown from her sharing bits of her life on Instagram since 2013 to finally making a big move 7 years later.

Deciding to act on her curiosity about beauty and lifestyle, Angel launched her Youtube channel in 2020 and has not looked back since.

“Something about the pandemic changed the way we lived, and our consumption habits”.

The most fulfilling part of your creative journey is the ability to bring her thoughts to life “Having a creative idea, the process of producing it and bringing it to life gives me so much joy.”
